Many classic breakfast foods have their origins in the farm—eggs come from chickens, bacon comes from pigs, and milk comes from chickens. Rise and shine with this Groupon.

The breakfast menu features down-home classics such as gravy-covered chicken-fried steak served with three eggs ($12.95) and the country special—biscuits, sausage patties, and scrambled eggs with hash browns or grits, dressed in the same sausage gravy ($11.45). Specialty french toast ($11.25) comes in three sweet varieties: banana, apricot, and apple cinnamon.
Alternatively, the lunch menu includes the Southern club ($11.25), which stacks bacon, egg, lettuce, tomatoes, and swiss cheese three layers high, and the Ortega chili burger ($11.75), which arrives alongside fries, a cup of housemade soup, and coleslaw or potato salad.
Southern kitchen does not serve dinner or take reservations. Be advised that weekend wait times may exceed 45 minutes.
At Southern Kitchen, guests may find themselves surrounded by fans in San Francisco Giants gear devouring old-fashioned breakfast and lunch food and chatting with the friendly owners, the Thompson family. Mike Thompson, a Giants fan himself, took over the venue in 1993, with his son Michael joining to help on the staff. Their down-home hospitality and comfort-food specials soon drew hungry groups to the roomy, semicircular booths, and amid the friendly chitchat, both Mike and Ed met their future wives.
This same neighborly vibe persists in the dining room today. To complement the quaint ambiance, the breakfast and lunch menus stick to delectably traditional cooking methods. Produce arrives at the kitchen daily, every egg is fresh off the farm, and baked goods—from biscuits to muffins—are housemade. Guests can indulge in chicken-fried steak and signature sausage gravy at any time of day as the kitchen never stops serving breakfast, and every weekday lunch plate includes a cup of housemade soup. Personal touches also speak to the eatery's down-home credo; for example, children can order their pancakes in the shapes of cheerful bunny rabbits or their favorite spherical planets.
